Deer Tick, Bastille to swing through

bastille band

Bastille is an English band (go figure).

A few bits of concert news from today that might interest you:

Deer Tick
Indie band Deer Tick will be making another stop in the area at The Hollow in downtown Albany March 7. Opener is Toy Soldiers. Tickets are on sale now -- they're $18 ahead / $20 day of.

Deer Tick has played this area a bunch of times over the past few years. They seem to have a lot of fans here. (The Hollow holds about 300.)

Bastille
Alterna/synth rock band Bastille is set to a play a show at Upstate Concert Hall June 2. Opener is Wolf Gang. Tickets go on sale this Saturday (January 18) -- they're $20.

Bastille's song "Pompeii" has been played everywhere over the last -- including about a zillion plays on YouTube. They were just nominated for a bunch of awards in the British equivalent of Grammys. And they're set to play SNL January 25.

Ed Kowalczyk
Ed Kowalczyk -- you know, the guy from the band Live -- is lined up for a show at The Egg March 20 (Swyer Theater). Tickets go on on sale this Friday (January 17) -- they're $35.

Kowalczyk's show is being billed as "'I Alone' Acoustic," a play off the once-huge Live song and, um, probably the fact that he's playing an acoustic show.

Speaking of guys with acoustic guitars who sound like they're from the 90s... The Band of Horses show at The Egg February 23 is sold out.

Man that Band of Horses show sounds great but I can't imagine being seated for the whole thing.

It's funny how music is in this area.
One day, bleak, not a show in sight in a hundred mile radius. Then, all great shows on one night -
March 7th is the cornucopia of all great music:
Sarah Jarosz at The Egg,
Alexis P. Suter Band at The Linda
Deer Tick (with TOY SOLDIERS!) at The Hollow
These are just the shows that immediately come to mind. I am sure there's plenty more going on around town that night.
Something for everyone!

Don't forget that The Wood Brothers are playing the same night as Band of Horses at The Egg.

Leaf Peeper Porter - a rich, malty dark beer nicely balanced by a touch of local apple cider (pre-fermentation for nice dry cider notes), ginger, cinnamon, and locally grown hops to brighten everything up. Basically, a rich dark beer finished with a nice apple-y fall crispness, perfect for fall in the Capital Region!
